Regulatory Information Management

Benefits of a Regulatory Information Management System

Different countries enforce different regulations and standards, making regulatory information management (RIM) the biggest challenge for regulatory affairs, submissions, and quality professionals in life science companies. The requirements are just dissimilar enough from market to market to create confusion and accumulate massive documentation.

MasterControl Regulatory Excellence, a cloud-based RIM solution, integrates content management with registration and submission capabilities to simplify global submissions and accelerate time to market.

Provide your regulatory and submission personnel with the essential tools for content collection, dossier management, and document lifecycle management on a single platform.

    1. Efficient RIM: Improve efficiency by automating the collection and management of regulatory content and data, including design concepts, prototypes, and design and technical files.
    2. Increased Collaboration: Harmonize regulatory and quality processes for better collaboration between the teams managing those processes and increased productivity.
    3. Streamlined Global Submissions: If you are registering products in multiple countries, management of dossier and technical documents will be easier with the help of a global checklist template designed to mirror regulatory pathways.
    4. Centralized Platform: Centralize content and data under one platform for a single source of truth accessible to all stakeholders regardless of geographic location.
    5. Continuous Project Management: An automated RIM system provides continuous monitoring and updates of every registration project, from start to finish.

A robust electronic RIM system is crucial to help you attain the following:

    1. A Single Source of Truth:An automated system will ensure that users across the globe will be using current, approved documentation because they will be pulling it from the same centralized source.
    2. Transparency of Processes:The visibility of product registration projects is crucial for companies making submissions for multiple products and markets. An electronic system provides transparency and the capability to track documents, tasks, and deadlines in a way that a manual system never could.
    3. Simplify Granularity of Global Regulations:Every country or region has its own requirements for different regulated products. While there are many similarities using the same product information, there are also distinct nuances. An automated RIM system can help simplify the workflow and users’ tasks despite the granularity of regulations.
    4. Connected Processes:It’s common for companies to invest in multiple systems that can’t “talk” to each other, which means the teams running those systems can’t work together efficiently either. An integrated RIM would be able to connect different processes and their users.
    5. Standardized Filings:Many companies who cling to a paper-based system end up with inconsistent submission filings, which are prone to errors and noncompliance. An automated system can standardize submissions with templates and ensure consistent filings across geographic locations.
